Frequently Asked Questions
Smart Shopping for Auto Repairs
You can help avoid trouble with an unreliable or dishonest repair shop by following these tips:
•Deal only with a registered shop. Make sure there's a State Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) registration certificate inside.
•Ask your family, friends and co-workers for advice on reliable repair shops in your area, as well as those you should avoid.
•Keep all records, including estimates, invoices, work orders, receipts, guarantees and warranties. Besides their importance in case you file a repair complaint, these papers serve as your record of service, and could increase your vehicle's resale value.
•If you authorize repair work by phone, write down the date and time, the name of the person you spoke with, any estimated price quoted, and other pertinent details.
•Don't be afraid to ask questions. Management of a shop should take the time to explain required repairs and prices, discuss problems, and tell you about the training and experience of employees.
*Make sure your vehicle is serviced and keep very clear records of your vehicle's maintenance.
